just checked FFG..
WW is listed as "On the Boat"

"The product is traveling from the printer to our warehouse. The duration of this process varies depending on where the printer is located, be it in the US, China, or Germany, but generally takes four to six weeks."

God knows how long it'll take to get to Oz tho

This is shaping up to be an exciting year for FFG.

I hope they don't screw it up.

Really looking forward to this one, but has anyone heard anything about the rules? I would love to get a look at them because I've never played the previous version.

Previous version rules:
http://files.boardgamegeek.com/file/download/5mj6jelr1d/Wiz-...?

Only change I know of is that, if you play an Object, it counts against your hand count until you decide to discard it from the board.

Wiz War on a boat sounds amusing. If a board space takes 10 points of damage, the boat springs a leak and the sector begins to flood...

The game has already reached its destination? Any news on when it will be delivered to the retailers?

I was in my local game store there in Copenhagen yesterday to pick up some promos for Nightfall and the it was ... the new edition of Wiz-War (eighth edition). A lot of people had preordered the game, some up to 6 years ago, and a few of them where not interested in the game anymore, so their copies where sold in the store. I got the very last one .

Rumors tell that the game will arrive in Germany at the end of January and will then be delivered to the retailers once FFG gives their 'go'.

Troll & Toad lists it as "Jan 19, 2012". That's been changed many times, but perhaps this time it will stick

Well... now it says "January 20, 2012" and "Preorder (Delayed)." So my guess is that it won't stick this time.

Interesting, FFG updated Nexus Ops straight to "Shipping" and hasn't changed Wiz-War from "On a Boat" to "Shipping." Not that this means anything, they are notoriously unreliable indicators of release.

I'm grappling with whether or not I get Nexus Ops, but Wiz-War was a no-brainer, so I hope it is coming soon!

Curses... I pre-ordered Wiz War to get to free shipping back when I thought it was coming out in time for Christmas. So this has been preventing my entire order from shipping for some time.

Lesson learned.

Ditto, but instead with Rex and Gosu Kamakor. The pain of preorder free shipping delays is a disemboweling that keeps on giving...
